#134: What’s the difference between settling for things and accepting the way things are? Your mindset. A defeatist mindset says “It’s too hard”. It sees only the negative and therefore it sees a bad situation as something that must grudgingly be settled into, because it is inevitable. A positive mindset can accept something difficult but still see the positive side and possibly a way to change the situation for the better.
#135: How many of your friends would you trust with your life? Well, I don’t have a lot of friends to begin with…I would trust my husband with my life, obvs. He’s my best friend. Other than that I probably have just a couple of very close friends and I would trust them too. I tend to have a small pack of friends instead of an army.
#136: What’s your definition of heaven? Sleeping as late as I want with no alarm clock! A rare luxury these days!
#137: What is your most prized possession? I hate to say this, but probably the computer. I wouldn’t know what to do without endless e-books, Spotify, Pinterest, etc.
#138: How would you describe yourself in one sentence? A quirky, bookish girl who loves animals and is always asking questions.
#139: What stands between you and happiness? Myself, typically. I’m having a deja vu moment of thinking I answered this question earlier, but maybe I didn’t. Anyway, I often stand in the way of my own happiness, either by being ungrateful for what I have or through self-doubt and negative self-talk. I’m working to change that.
#140: What makes a person beautiful? How they treat others. Kind actions are beautiful.
(My friend Celeste is also answering these questions each week, please go check out her wonderful blog here!)
Kindness makes people beautiful and it makes life beautiful : )
Kindness is definitely a beautiful thing!
And damn, I really need to answer some more of these questions…
I can’t wait to read your answers! You always have good ones. :)
#134. Well said! I agree 100%
#135. I love my friends and I think they are wonderful but I wouldn’t put my life in their hands. That is what family is for.
#136. Hopefully, a place I’ll go to when I die.
#137. My car, even though it’s old, lol. It’s still my life line.
#138. I’m a logical, honest, easy to get along, and drama-free woman who loves to keep things sweet and simple.
#139. I think that question was ask before too.
#140. 100% agree.
I really couldn’t live without a car either. I know public transportation is supposed to be green and good, but I’m a little selfish :)
